  1. [s]Yay thread resurrection[/s] [center][img]http://pokebeach.com/news/0212/pokemon-black-white-2.gif[/img][/center] Yes, Black 2 and White 2. Not Grey. Not a single, enhanced version, like we've got in past generations. Black [b]2[/b] and White [b]2[/b]. Not many details are known about the game at this time, aside from the two mascots for each version- Black Kyurem and White Kyurem (different forms of Kyurem, in case you couldn't tell). Some new scans have recently surfaced and are apparently legit- behold the [url="http://www.dotup.org/uploda/www.dotup.org2855392.jpg"]main characters and rival[/url]. The girl with a guitar is apparently a Gym leader. No details on the others shown yet. There's also some random bits [url="http://www.dotup.org/uploda/www.dotup.org2855389.jpg"]here[/url]. If I had to take a guess, I'd say either Unova has changed drastically or we didn't see all of it in the original B/W. The games will be released in Japan this summer, and the U.S. and Europe this Fall. So, uh. Thoughts? Hate? Love? RAEG?

[font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Name[/b]: Osamu Kazuhiro [b]Age[/b]: 18 [b]Gender[/b]: Male[/size][/font][/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Arcana[/b]: Justice [b]Appearance[/b]: Osamu stands at 5'7, weighing exactly 160 lbs, though some of that weight is muscle obtained through various workouts for kendo.[/size][/font][/size][/font][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif] He keeps his dark brown hair cut short- not quite to the point where he is bald, but just enough so that it wont be a hindrance. This leaves nothing to conceal his blue eyes. He is supposed to wear glasses, but he hardly ever wears them.[/font][/size] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Personality[/b]: Osamu is a focused and very serious person. He has little patience for any sort of foolishness or jokes while there is work to be done, which has earned him either the respect or hatred of others- though that is usually all. [/size][/font][/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Bio[/b]: [/size][/font][/size][/font][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Born and raised in Yokuboshi, Osamu is the youngest of two sons...or perhaps [i]was [/i]the youngest would be more accurate, because now he is the only child. His older brother was killed ten years ago in what appeared to be a gang fight, as his body was found alongside several others who were around the same age. Osamu believes that this is not the case- Masao was not one for gangs. Despite his vocal objections to this idea, people shrugged him off. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Osamu then began heavily focusing on his school work and eventually joining the school's kendo team once he was old enough, mostly in an attempt to distract himself from everything going on at home and within himself. He was often offered pretigious positions in school, such as membership on the student council or captain of the kendo team, but he refused them all- such things were simply of no interest to him. However, he is seeking to further his education in America. [/font][/size] [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3]He also secretly pours over any document he can get his hands on relating to his brother's death, or anything similar to it. Needless to say, the recent incidents have been of great interest to him...[/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Nickname[/b]: People have called him Sam since the day he was born.

  4. [i]Dreams can do many things. In dreams, you can go anywhere you want, or be whoever or whatever you want.[/i] [i]This is why you do not question your dream at first. You are a butterfly, flying through...nothing. Emptiness. You are just flying. You do not know how long you have been flying, but you don't really care. You simply enjoy flying.[/i] [i]Eventually, you notice a door off in the distance. You do not know why, but you are drawn to it. You fly onwards, getting closer and closer to the door, until eventually the door opens, engulfing you in a bright light...[/i] [i]And suddenly you aren't a butterfly anymore. You are you, standing in a simple white room. You look up and notice a butterfly- the butterfly that you had been. You watch as it flies towards the center of the room, towards a man wearing all white, with dark hair. For some reason, you are drawn to the man, and find yourself walking closer to him. The closer you get, you realize you can't see his face- it is concealed by a butterfly mask.[/i] [i]"Good, you're all here," the man says. The man's statement implies that there are others here as well, but when you look around, you see no one else.[/i] [i]The man continues on, "I am Philemon. I have summoned you here to the realm between consciousness and unconsciousness...but first, tell me. What is your name?"[/i] [i]You were busy watching the butterfly that was hovering around Philemon that you barely register what he said. Your name? What was it? Ah, yes, it was-[/i] [i]"Excellent," Philemon says, "Many who make it here are incapable of grasping their identities, lost between several identities hidden deep within them. But you have passed the test. You have been able to harness your true self and [/i][i]hold on to your identity.[/i] [i]"It is for that very reason I have summoned you all here. It is to you, who have a solid grasp on who you are, that I grant the power of Persona- the power to manifest your true self into being. The time in which you will need this power draws near. You will face others who, unlike you, are not sure who they are. [/i] [i]But, for now, it is time for you to return to your world. Until then..."[/i] [i]Philemon gives a small bow, and then suddenly you are engulfed in a white light...[/i] [center][i]------------------[/i][/center] Just a quick something to be aware of when filling out your sheet- [center][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][u]The Arcana[/u][/size][/font][/center] [size=4][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]For this RP, you will choose your characters' [url="http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Arcana"]Arcana[/url].

  5. [center][i]April 2015[/i] The city of Yokuboshi, often simply called Yoku or Yokubo by its inhabitants, is widely known throughout Japan as one of the most peaceful cities in the country. That is about to change. Recently, Yokuboshi's crime rate has taken a sudden spike. It's not just the occasional theft, either- the crimes all range anywhere from bank robbery to downright murder. These crimes have become increasingly more frequent, and it seems as though no matter what the authorities do, the crimes continue. Possibly the strangest thing of all, however, is whenever they manage to apprehend one of these criminals, all they can do is babble about things called 'Shadows'. It has been found that these people are often suffering from sleep deprivation, and such babbling is often passed off as side effects of the lack of sleep. A select few, however, aren't quite convinced.... ------------ Welcome to the backstage thread for [b]Persona: Conflicting Desires[/b]. I'll be posting various information about the RP itself here, and it is here that we will discuss everything about the RP itself. But you knew that already, didn't you? Of course you did.[/center] [center]A quick note before we begin: this is a Persona RP, yes. But that doesn't mean I will tolerate random swearing for teh lulz. I also will not tolerate any form of metagaming or godmodding.Try to keep things as clean as possible- I understand some swearing will occur, but there is a fine line between doing it for effect and blatant vulgarity- if you're not sure it will go over well, don't do it. Also understand that people in this RP will be injured and likely die. In fact I can guarantee they will die, and likely in a horrible fashion.[/center] [center]That will be nothing compared to what will happen to characters of players who think they can simply ignore these rules and do things their own way, though. This is the Megami Tensei universe. As such, I have multiple ways of dealing with said people. I'll let your imagination go wild with that one.[/center] [center]That being said, I'm no dictator. I'm open for any ideas, so feel free to talk to me about these ideas and post them here for discussion =D[/center] [center]Now, moving on to other important things about the RP- [size=5][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][u]The City of Yokuboshi[/u][/font][/size] This RP takes place within the (fictional) city of Yokuboshi, Japan. The city is broken into five parts- North, East, South, Port, and West. North- Uptown. Places of Interest- Yokuboshi University, Yokuboshi Police HQ(there is a station in each section except the Port), various government establishments East- Also known as the Industrial District. As the name implies, this is where most of the businesses are located. Places of interest- [url="http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Junes"]Junes[/url], Suou Mechanics, Yokuboshi Academy (divided into three separate buildings for each level of school, but all on the same campus) South- Downtown. Places of interest- Yokuboshi Mall(several specialty clothing stores, Arcadia- an arcade, GameStation- a gaming store, C&L Toy Store, Wild Duck Burger, Aiya (ramen shop), Yoku Sweetshop, Book On, and an abandoned shop called 'The Velvet Room'), Port- exactly what it sounds like. Shipments of imported goods from around the world come in from here, as well as the occasional foreigner. The place is littered with various warehouses. West- Also known as the Domestic District. Most people in the city live here.[/center] [center][u][size=5][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Useful Links[/font][/size][/u][/center] [center]Just a few links that might help some people out.[/center] [center][url="http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Megami_Tensei_Wiki"]Megami Tensei Wiki[/url]- a wiki for the Megami Tensei universe, which Persona is a part of.[/center] [center][url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_holidays_in_Japan"]Japanese Holidays[/url]- Exactly what it says.[/center] [center][url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_japan#School_grades"]Grade level/age table and other school info[/url]- as I can't find a decent guide to Japanese schools, this is closest I can find.

[/b][/size][size=3]The setting alone is enough to cause some slight confusion, so communication is going to be imperative, especially at the start.[/size][/center]
  6. BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH @_@ No, this is not dead, and neither am I. I apologize for the lack of...anything, but that'll be changing soon. I plan to have a post up before Saturday, so hopefully we can get this thing moving again soon.

    RPG Persona: Conflicting Desires

    [i]April 6, 2015[/i] [i]Port District[/i] The sun would soon rise over the city of Yokuboshi, signaling the start of a new day. Soon, the streets would explode with people getting off and going to work, and kids going to school. All unaware that there had been several murders during the night. He didn't know how it happened. He had simply been with the gang, hanging out in their usual place, one of the warehouses in the Port. They had been going about their usual routine, loudly making jokes, smoking, popping back a few beers, the usual gang stuff. Then he had fallen asleep... He didn't remember what he dreamed, but he knew someone had been in it...no, not someone, [i]something[/i]. The thing appeared and killed the entire gang. And for some reason, this had pleased him. He felt liberated- they had always looked down upon him, treated him like crap. Now he had finally gotten back at them, and they would never treat him like that again. Ever. But of course it was all a dream- nothing but an illusion. Once he woke up, the gang would be alive, maybe even put him down further for falling asleep. [i]But what if they really died?[/i] [i]What if he made it happen?[/i] When he awoke, he was greeted by a horrible sight. A glorious, horrible sight. The bodies of everyone who had been in the gang lay strewn about the warehouse, limp and bloody. And very much dead. He felt his heart begin to race. This...this was bad. They were all dead. All of them. And he might be next...unless, of course, he had been the one to kill them all. He finally noticed a sort of humming sound just behind him. He quickly turned around, falling over and landing unceremoniously on his rear end when he saw the source of the sound. It was the thing from his dream. Now that he got a god look at it, the thing was absolutely hideous. There was simply no other way to describe it. This hideous thing had killed everyone. And now it was about to come for him...no, wait. It felt oddly familiar, as if he knew it... He then began to laugh, at first a low and steady chuckle, then a loud, uncontrollable cackle as the thing disappeared. He continued laughing, not even bothering to look around at his former â??friendsâ?. Who cared about them? They were dead, and he had killed them. When the police found him later that morning, he was curled up in a ball on the floor, still laughing and only managing to occasionally say, â??Shadows...Shadows, the true self...â? Meanwhile, everyone in the city went about their business, unaware of the odd happening in the warehouse. Some had long since been awake, already on their way to work. Others were just now waking up, attempting to get fully awake and recovering from what had been a good night's sleep. A select few, however, had not slept that well...
  8. One would think a somewhat uncommon Pokemon would be easy enough to find. Not the case with Sawk, apparently.

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    Working on [b]Pokemon White [/b]in an attempt to finish it before B2/W2 comes out. This is likely not going to happen, considering all the grinding I do and that I'm trying to get specific Pokemon before really doing anything in the game (only need a Rufflet at this point). I'm still gonna try, though ._.

    Gaming Pokemon Black 2 and White 2

    The scans have been translated. Details [URL=http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/May_issue_of_CoroCoro_magazine_leaked]here[/URL] due to length. I'm curious about some of the changes to Unova, particularly the craters in Driftveil and the lack of a lighthouse. I'm getting a feeling that a lot of stuff has gone down in the two years since the original games. And there's the ice covering the region, but it hasn't been confirmed if that's just to hide things for now or if it's actually part of the game. I'm also glad that they're finally including some older Pokemon, and I'm hoping that Houndour/Houndoom is included >_> The professor in this game is researching Pokemon strength, which the rival is also apparently interested in (and I lol'd at "From now, I'm going to rage!"). Reading around, some people seem to find him a bit...menacing. Perhaps the professor will be the villain this time around? ANDANDAND. We're starting in a city this time around, not a town. Should be interesting. Although I'm wondering- why do they really need Trainer Schools? I mean, I understand that they're there to help [S]people who don't read the manual[/S] new players, but taking a realistic view, WHY is that necessary? One would think a few types and status ailments wouldn't take so long to drill into some kids heads o-o As for the player characters, I don't really hate them, but they're not OMFGAMAZING to me, either. I am curious as to what they'll be named when it comes to naming them based on their versions. They can't exactly be named Black and White, so maybe something related to electricity and fire in reference to Black/White Kyurem?
  11. Exactly like that, yes. Annnnd posted. GO GO GO EDIT: For those who have characters in school, keep in mind that today(April 6th) is the start of a new school year. YAY JAPANESE SCHOOLS In case you're not sure what to do, just have your character go about their usual routine- go to school/work, the usual. There will be a speech for the first day of school, so keep that in mind. Also, no one has heard about the murders yet, and everyone had the same dream about Philemon (see the Audition thread/Compendium). Yeah, this is going to be a tad complicated at first. And for this reason I want to emphasize communication- post here often with your questions, message me if need be, stuff like that. I want to keep this as unchaotic as possible.
  12. I might allow weapons eventually. I just feel it would get to chaotic if I did allow it, and I don't want everyone focusing on them and not using their Personas- they're there for a reason, and it's not as a means of last resort protection. The things the characters will be facing wont typically be things they can simply beat down. There's also the fact that the Persona and user are directly connected- if the Persona takes a hit, the user feels it, and vice versa. With that in mind, if a character charged into battle along with their Persona, the two would likely end up getting in each other's way. Anyway, working on the opening post now. Should be up in the next few hours. And on another interestingly random note, it occurred to me yesterday while I was taking a test in Psychology, I realized that the chapter we had been covering was based on the whole unconscious thoughts and desires thing. Gee, I wonder where I got my inspiration from (even if unconsciously)? :P
  13. Go go Gadget DOUBLE POST! Alright, so I'm thinking of getting this party started on Wednesday. For those who haven't filled out a character sheet yet, I'm not closing sign-ups, so there's no need to rush.
  14. Toonami. Enough said.

  15. For another general note, there isn't any particular deadline for sign-ups. I'm just waiting until we get a decent number of people so that we can start, and sign-ups will remain open even after the RP itself starts, unless we get a sudden burst of people in and fill up all the slots.
  16. A few things- First off, I don't mind people playing as foreign characters. That's perfectly fine. However, I feel the need to emphasize that this DOES take place in Japan. A few foreigners here and there are okay, but let's try to keep the ratio of Japanese and foreign characters reasonable. Also, [b]ExcelExcel[/b]- I'd like to point out that a 6'7 female weighing 140 lbs is considered to be unhealthily underweight for a 17 year old, and while there ARE people like that, there generally tends to be a reason- drug use, anorexia, etc. Of course, given the nature of the RP, it could very well be because of one of those reasons, and if that's the case, that's fine. But if not, you might want to consider editing either the age, height, or weight so that they all match up better.

    Anime What are You Watching/Reading Now?

    [color=#ff0000]Finished up [b]Persona 4: The Animation[/b] today. Sort of. Apparently, they're releasing a Directors Cut of the 'final' episode and a new episode that will cover the True Ending. BUT ANYWAY. The entire series was pretty good, given that it was a video game adaptation, although it had it's rushed moments. And let's not forget the...er...animation...errors (Defaces, double Chies, etc) It's going to be weird, not having anything to look forward to watching on a weekly basis, at least until Fate/Zero 2 starts. I'm probably going to focus on [b]Tiger and Bunny [/b]in the meantime, maybe finally get around to finishing some other series I've been neglecting. I dunno, I might even pick up [b]Bleach [/b]again, for teh lulz.[/color]
  18. Edited the opening post and changed the thread title to differentiate between it and the sign-up thread, which is now up. I decided on The Velvet Room because...well, it made the most sense and seemed less generic than 'Backstage' :P Also, the RP now has a name. YAAAAAAAY I don't know why I didn't think of the new people passing through town thing >>;; I guess that's a lot less complicated than going into the dream world and rescuing them a la P4.

  20. There will be a few original Personas, but most of them will be based on demons in the MegaTen universe, maybe with a few modifications to their appearances.
  21. Characters will be no younger than 12. There isn't any particular limit to how much older they can be, so long as it stays reasonable. So if you want to be a high school student, fine. If you want to be an adult, that's okay too. The only way we'll all end up playing high school students is if everyone signs up as them :P Nope, that's it- thanks for the help :D I'll likely update the opening post here with more info soon, and the sign ups should be ready within the next day or so. And of course, if anyone else has any suggestions, I'm all ears. Or eyes, if you want to get technical.
  22. I really should get to work on this essay...

  23. Hmm. I'll likely have them send them directly to me, yes. Buuut I'll worry about that when I get there- gotta get this thing off the ground, first :P I was actually thinking of having the Personas handle all the fighting, like in the P4 anime. That's always made a bit more sense to me, as compared to the brief appearances they made in the games to cast a spell, then disappearing. The people with Reverse Arcana might carry weapons of some sort, seeing as their Personas will likely only be stable enough to do just that- appear, attack, disappear. As for the other bit, it will be a mix of all of the above. At first, they will general stay stationary, but as things move along, people might start moving around inside the dungeons- perhaps they haven't actually obtained what they are after, maybe they just don't want to be caught, maybe....hm. I think I'll keep that bit to myself for now >:)
  24. I'm planning on allowing the players to choose from one of eighteen Arcana (Fool, Judgement/Aeon, and World/Universe not being options). I will then give them their Personas in game, when the time comes. The reasoning behind this: one, I find it to be more realistic, seeing as the characters in the games couldn't just say, "HEY. I want this Persona, kthnxbai". Two, I don't want people running around with all-powerful Personas from the start. Sure, I could reject them, but I don't want to keep having to reject character sheets because they picked a Persona that's way to strong. Evolution will be handled the same way. And it is at this point I should probably mention- I'm only allowing 18 characters for this RP, one for each Arcana. I think that's a high enough number, and I doubt I'll get more than that to join. I was also planning on having some 'evil' characters later in the game with Reverse Arcana, perhaps those who give into their desires. What I could do, though, is allow people to play as these characters, though I would have to work closely with them to keep the story going the right direction. This probably wouldn't happen until a bit after the RP started- I don't want EVERYONE playing as these guys and gals, for various reasons. I like that idea...yes. In fact, that would give said 'evil' characters a reason to fight the other characters. I'll have to think on that for a bit, because my brain is currently going crazy thinking of all the potential things that could be done with that. As for the casino/object thing...hmm. I haven't really thought of an object they could use yet, but as for locations, I was considering having a location change into a dungeon sort of thing, depending on the person. A casino is certainly a good idea- perhaps someone has a gambling addiction, then they give into their desires and the Shadow creates (or morphs) a casino-like area into its own domain in reality, or something along those lines. EDIT: Idea. Perhaps characters could use coins to summon their Personas? I say coins, because coins typically mean money of some sort, and the choice to spend money recklessly (giving into desire) or to spend it wisely (suppressing desire) is probably the most common temptation people run in to.
  25. [list] [*]He will be around, yes. [*]I toyed with the idea of Social Links, but in the end decided not to have them, seeing as they're really only relevent to a Persona user with the Wild Card ability, which none of our characters will have. What I might do is allow a characters' Persona to evolve as the story progresses and they develop. [*]Typographical error The alternative is that the person would manage to repress their desires, which [i]could[/i] potentially awaken their Persona. [*]Most time will be spent in the real world, but occasional travel to the dream world might be necessary. Then it becomes a question of how that would work, which is still being worked on. [/list] Hmm...I like that idea. In fact, I don't know why I didn't think of it before, seeing as being around the Protagonist was usually what caused other characters Personas in the games. Maybe it could combine with the above second option somehow- perhaps they supress their desires, and Philemon is then able to reach out to them, and/or their Persona is awakened when they are near the other characters. Something along those lines, then.
